About Us

RIPAC

Representative Initiatives PAC

RIPAC is a cooperatively run think-tank and political action committee for grassroots ballot propositions.

Join Our Social/Political Evolution

“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men deriving their just authority from the consent of the governed.” – Declaration of Independence

 

Save the Republic with Direct Democracy

Rather than give our power away to political parties, imagine what we can do when we unite on issue-specific policy!

 

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” – George Washington

Participate in Educational Collaboration

“Educate and inform the whole mass of people… they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

IMAGINE

  • Vote for anti-corruption candidates to replace the current politicians of every office. 
  • Recall every non-satisfactory candidate from office.
  • Veto every non-satisfactory law made by your state legislature.
  • Nullify, every unconstitutional federal law.
  • Create new statutory law, as needed, to safeguard liberties and freedom from government power.
  • Create new constitutional amendments, as needed, to safeguard liberties and freedom from government power.
  • File suit against corrupt politicians, corporate leaders and judges. 
  • Call for constitutional conventions, on issue specific agenda, with partnering states to supersede corrupt supreme court decisions. 

RIPAC is the first citizens cooperative SUPERPAC project.

We are to become an extremely dynamic, organized, educational resource serving and empowering the public to end government corruption.

The Technological Breakthrough

The RIPAC system is one of the future. Dynamic collaboration for direct democracy processes online will serve as a model for our civilization that can span the vastness of time onward into the future.

We are working to crowdfund a revolutionary software. Open-source and eventually block-chained and decentralized direct democracy software will empower local communities, states, nations and the world at large. Some predict it will even serve as the model for future societies in space and on other worlds.

“The form of government on Mars would be a direct democracy, not representative. So it would be people voting directly on issues. And I think that’s probably better because the potential of corruption is substantially diminished in a direct versus a representative democracy.” – Elon Musk

RIPAC is a clearing house for citizen’s ballot propositions

 

The initiative process allows the people to create new laws while ensuring the government serves its desired purposes.

Initiatives can also serve to Nullify unconstitutional Federal laws.

A referendum gives us the right and ability to stop any state law before it goes into effect, neutralizing bad policies decided by our representatives on behalf of the will of the people.
A nomination qualifies a candidate for the ballot; for the purpose of replacing the current incumbent.
A recall proposes that a candidate be voted out of office. If we want to stop a certain official from being elected again, we propose a recall and ensure they can not return by a popular vote.
We may exercise our rights to indict corrupt politicians on behalf of our unbiased community calling for a fair, legal trial. This process can replace judges with a panel of publicly selected jurors to avoids conflicts of interest in having judges who may have ties with defendants.
A citizen grand jury selects to bring the accused, thought to have been protected by the elite, to justice and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Limited Constitutional Conventions can be called on by the states, regarding one or more specific topics at a time. This will enable the people, representing the states, to unite with other states calling for the same reforms, to challenge supreme court decisions that we may deem unconstitutional ourselves.

What is a Ballot Proposition?

A ballot proposition is a method where votes are cast and counted tangibly in accordance with a specific issue and a winning vote creates new changes in government.

E.g. Initiative, Referendum, Recall, Nomination, Citizen Grand Jury and Limited Constitutional Convention.

The first amendment in the Bill of Rights includes,” to petition the government for a redress of grievances,” and was designed to benefit the public while serving as a check and balance in government. Without this first amendment right we are at the mercy of our elected and unelected officials; politicians and bureaucrats. The power to supersede our government through ballot propositions for authentic self-reliance is our right and we must use it to avoid inescapable bondage and tyranny should we witness unchecked unconstitutional government policy continue on its current path.

Initiative, referenda and other direct democracy tools, will further empower the people to strengthen and fix problems of our representative government.

“I believe in the Initiative and Referendum, which should be used not to destroy representative government, but to correct it whenever it becomes unrepresentative”. – President Teddy Roosevelt

Ballot Propositions Are The Solution.

All of the world’s great civilizations followed the same path.

1. Bondage to Liberty.
2. Liberty to Abundance
3. Abundance to Complacency
4. Complacency to Apathy
5. Apathy back to Bondage

The RIPAC platform will end the cycle.

Apathy becomes Action

Enough people who care to take direct action with us can be united. We are working towards the final revolution, the e-governance solution for world peace. We can achieve peace through direct initiative specifically focused on empowering people to vote for solutions at the ballot.

We are not going back because too many people are aware who care enough to take direct action with us. We are working towards the final revolution, the e-governance strategy for social/political evolution of all civilization.

To be exceptions to history, we must break the cycle and evolve past our prior reliances on “leaders” and become the leaders ourselves. We must decentralize the message and help YOU become a grassroots advocate for the RIPAC system in your local and online community. If we don’t create direct democracy now, who do we expect to wait for to create it for us? When you join us, you will become empowered to take direct action immediately with our platform.

“We are the ones we have been waiting for” – Unnamed Hopi Elder

  • Political Sciences

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.” John Adams

RIPAC is an ambitious project to restore checks and balances to the Republic.

Applying technology and new strategies we can supersede all prior limitations.

Unite with us so “We the People” decide what is best for our states with a grassroots up directive, not the political elite from the top down.

“The heaviest penalty for declining to rule is to be ruled by someone inferior to yourself.”
― Plato, The Republic

It’s time we rule ourselves and make the movement possible by participating in it.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

-Margaret Mead.
